This Handmade Project allowed me to create something in regards of design principles, colour theory, lateral thinking and typography—away from the influence of the computer. I had to think outside the box. Literally, outside "the box" of the computer.
I decided to make a vase after the Japanese art of Kintsugi as it fits perfectly to Michael Kiwanuka's album Love & Hate which is all about dealing with being broken.
Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery objects with gold. The flaw is seens as a unique piece of the object's history which adds to its beauty.
